Archived: Here’s What She Said to Me

Touring Dorset through Artsreach, the county’s touring arts charity, Utopia Theatre, the company in residence at Sheffield Crucible Theatre dedicated to demonstrating the rich cultural heritage of African theatre, brings Here’s What She Said to Me, to Motcombe Memorial Hall.                                    

“If I were like you,
I’d have never found a man to marry me.
And that right there is a problem.”

Meet Agbeke, Omotola and Aramide, the three generations of proud African women connecting with each other across two continents, across time and space. Together they share their struggles, their joys, tragedies and broken dreams in order to find healing in the present.

Here’s What She Said to Me combines drama with music, poetry and movement to tell
a moving story of daughters and mothers in the world of migrations and shifting identities,
braving life with an undying hope, optimism and resilience.
